# What is the mass of 1 mol of atoms of P?

Nov 20, 2015

A mole is similar to a dozen.

#### Explanation:

A dozen is 12
A mole is 6.022 x ${10}^{23}$ molecules of an atom.

Therefore, the mass of 1 mol of P atoms is found using the formula

6.022 x ${10}^{23}$ (30.97376) = 1.865 x ${10}^{25}$

P's molar mass can be found on the periodic table.

Hence, the mass of 1 mol of P atoms is 1.865 x ${10}^{25}$
